Our friends at Et tu, Mr. Destructo have composed the best reaction to the chaos of the final week of the MLB regular season. You should go read it. A snippet, from the prelude: "The only time a Bill James almanac should come out over seven games is if you find your chair leg wobbling as you lean back and watch. Great teams lose seven games all the time. Terrible teams win seven games all the time. Sometimes, all the brilliance and experience money can buy amounts to nothing more than knowing the consequences of guessing poorly."
